I'm not finding rust issue, but possibly because I'm finding other things sooner that are putting me off before I get to the rust.
We have a pretty even split of 2 & 4 doors over here it seems, I wouldn't say there are a lot here, but enough that they come up relatively regularly.
There are quite a few Japan or South African imports though, and I'd rather hold out for a NZ new one.
My wife already has a MK1 Cabriolet GTI, so I wouldn't be too upset to end up with a 4 door. And I have seen some really hot 4 doors about.
I agree patience is the key, I'm not buying until the perfect one comes up.
Thank you Mr Scruff i have just read all you mk2 info after i posted a question about buying one myself.
Is around 5000 a reasonable price for a 1990 GTI with 19400ks and in excellent condition by photos worth checking out
look forward to some advice and guidance.
